CEO, Direct Technology
I’m Rick Nelson, CEO of Direct Technology, and I believe that the spirit of progress is what should drive everyone, both in the workplace and out of it. That’s why I’ve decided to support Conquer Paralysis Now, a charity dedicated to furthering research, treatment, rehabilitation, and technological advancements to help cure paralysis. Conquer Paralysis Now isn’t just focused on helping victims of spinal cord injury (SCI) cope with their condition, they want to cure it entirely, and help hundreds of thousands of people get back on their feet. Sam Schmidt, the founder of Conquer Paralysis Now, is an ambitious, brave man whose dream is to be able to walk his daughter down the aisle at her wedding. I’m passionate about doing everything I can to support his charity and help him some day achieve that dream.
